LONDON - Leading U.K. food retailer Tesco PLC has selected the Retalix BackOffice solution for installation in all Tesco stores in the United Kingdom, Europe, and Asia.
Retalix BackOffice provides retailers a completely integrated in-store solution including comprehensive applications for ordering, receiving, and inventory management. Based on a Windows operating system and using an open architecture approach, the BackOffice solution fully integrates with Retalix's front office and point-of-sale solution, which Tesco has installed in more than 21,000 terminals across 1,300 sites worldwide. Along with standard terminals, Tesco will be installing the Retalix BackOffice on mobile, Windows-CE based platforms, allowing store managers to benefit from greater flexibility and availability.
Colin Cobain, Tesco's U.K. IT director, said: "Retalix was chosen to be the supplier of the BackOffice solutions for the Tesco Group after an extensive, close-run examination. Retalix has a good understanding of the Tesco business, and there is a very good match of their products to our business needs. We have a good relationship with the Retalix team, and we look forward to a successful implementation."
"Over nearly a decade, Retalix and Tesco have built a strong working partnership together, and I am delighted that our relationship with one of the world's leading blue-chip retailers continues to go from strength to strength," said Barry Shaked, president and c.e.o. of Ra'anana, Israel-based Retalix.
